It don't matter,it's got pressure from muffler,plus you don't really have that much choice on where to place it anyways.

Or no header tank at all.
When I ran nitro I just ran without the header tank. The last nitro I had I just used a bubbleless clunk and never had a problem. Of course I also only ran YS engines.

I only need one!

I have always used a header tank with my nitro helis just to have that extra piece of mind. I never had any issues with where I mount them as long as they are plumbed right

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

header tank is a saviour when your clunk line in the main tank comes off lol.
Providing you take notice of fuel level in the header as your flying.
